From emergency action to development

It is now three years since the terrible earthquake that hit Pakistan, claiming over 73,000 lives and causing 69,000 serious injuries. Handicap International came to Pakistan during the emergency to help those people newly disabled as a result of earthquake related injuries and to support those previously disabled whose needs were being overlooked by the relief effort. Once the emergency phase was over Handicap International remained to carry on its work and to address the needs of disabled people as the development phase began.

 

Today, as the reconstruction phase is coming to its conclusion, Handicap International has developed two main strategic areas for the next two years in the zones affected by the earthquake.

 

Simon Grainge, Handicap International's Field Programme Director in Pakistan, will explain the work that has been carried out in the country over the past year.
